The 90s was an interesting year for rom-coms. You could never really pinpoint where the dynamics of the protagonists will take you, or them for that matter. You never knew who was the right guy or the wrong guy; the right girl or the wrong girl. You fell in love with your best friend, but he loved someone else but he was never right for you – or you married your childhood sweetheart but she wasn’t the one. Problems galore, one rom-com at a time, until Runaway Bride came, with it’s absolutely unique love story between Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. She met many wrongs, she met her right, she still couldn’t do right by him, until she could. The movie is a classic example of where there’s true love, there’s a happy and blissful ending.
1. I love Eggs Benedict, I hate every other kind. I hate big weddings with everybody staring. I’d like to get married on a weekday while everybody’s at work. And when I ride off into the sunset, I want my own horse.
2. When I was walking down the aisle, I was walking toward somebody who didn’t have any idea who I really was. And it was only half the other person’s fault, because I had done everything to convince him that I was exactly what he wanted. So it was good that I didn’t go through with it because it would have been a lie. But you – you knew the real me.
3. You’re a cynical, exploitative, mean-hearted creep who wouldn’t know real love if it bit him in the armpit.
4. You want a man who’ll lead you down the beach with his hands over your eyes… Just so you can discover the feel of the sand under your feet.
5. Look, I guarantee there’ll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don’t ask you to be mine, I’ll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you’re the only one for me.
6. You want a guy that’ll wake you up at dawn. He’s just bursting to talk to you. Can’t wait another minute… Just to find out what you’ll say. Am i right?
7. I think attraction is mistaken for rightness.
